    Default iPhone 3GS only turns on with power source
    I'm looking to get an iphone that has had some water damage. Seller says it only turns on when plugged to a power source. Is there any chance I can fix this? New batter perhaps?

    could be the battery or just the contacts from the battery to the mobo are corroded...Could be the mobo itself as well tho..

    Wouldn't there be an error code thrown if the motherboard was to blame? If corrosion is the issue, can that be fixed? Either way I think I'll take a chance with it if I can pick it up for under 100$.
